Trim your wick to 1cm before each burn. Keeping your wick trimmed is essential, Its removes the dead carbon from the top of wick, to help the wick burn, and reduces the soot given off.
Illuma-lids (or jar toppers) are amazing. They reflect heat back into the candle to help the wax pool. They also help to steady the flame for a clean and even burn.
Allow the wax to pool (liquefy) to the edges of the jar this help to prevent tunnelling.. For Large Jars burn for approx 3.5 - 4hrs
The decorative trays help prevent heat damage to your surfaces, and Shades encourage an even burn.
But both look great together and bring a little style to your Yankee Candle
Positioning of the candle is important, always ask yourself,
"Will it be in a draught?".
"Can anything around it blow into the flame?".
"Is it secure and upright?"
"Is anything around it flammable"
Use a candle s snuffer to put out the flame.
Quickly and carefully place the snuffer over the flame ('But don't dip') until the flame extinguishes. This reduces smoke and wax escaping the candle.
A frequent question is: "Why is there approx a 1cm of wax left at the bottom of the jar?" This is a safety feature of the Yankee Candles and helps you to know when it is time to get out a new Candle to burn.
